Courtyard Cottage is an individual detached barn conversion, forming part of the redevelopment of Winnal Farm at Kinlet, completed circa 2002 to create a most desirable collection of sympathetically renovated properties together with the original farmhouse. The courtyard lies about 100 yards back from the road, adjacent to picturesque open countryside and approached over a private gravel driveway.

Set back behind a paved pathway with private lawned garden, the main entrance door to Courtyard Cottage opens to a reception hall with flagstone floor, staircase with half landing and guest cloakroom off, fitted with a low level wc and hand basin, whilst an inner cupboard houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.

The lounge features an exposed beam to the ceiling plus a Clearview stove set on corner hearth, with distant countryside views from the window.

The hub of the home is undoubtedly the fabulous open plan kitchen/ dining area and split-level living room with wooden floor, log burner and French windows either side, opening to both front and rear gardens.

This is a wonderfully sociable area of the house, with a well defined dining area, again with French windows opening to garden, plus a sizeable kitchen area with tile Amtico flooring and a range of cream wall and base units complemented by solid oak work surfaces, having an inset Belfast sink.

The kitchen also features an electric double oven with AEG steel canopy hood, five ring induction hob and Bosch integrated dishwasher. A freestanding Smeg washing machine and Leibherr fridge freezer may be available by separate negotiation.

Displaying further exposed beams, the whole kitchen/ dining/ living area is both light, spacious, and ideal for entertaining - particularly in the summer months where the excellent accessibility to the gardens certainly adds an extra dimension to the living space.

To the first floor there are three well proportioned double bedrooms, all with pitched ceilings featuring exposed beams and the two bedrooms featuring twin in-built wardrobes. The master bedroom enjoys distant views from the gable end double casement window, and en-suite access to the bathroom.

The 'Jack & Jill' bathroom features a tile effect floor, wall panelling to half height, and suite comprising panelled bath, low level wc, pedestal hand basin and tiled cubicle with mixer shower.

Mains electricity and water are both connected, with drainage to a recently renewed septic tank and oil-fired central heating. All windows have wooden framed double glazing with the east elevation also featuring three circular porthole windows edged with exposed brickwork. The conversion has been completed to a high standard throughout, with a number of quality features such as ledge and brace internal doors with Suffolk latches.

Outside, there are two parking spaces to the front of the house, whilst to the rear is a paved patio with lawned garden beyond, having a couple of well placed seating areas nicely screened from the courtyard.

Of further interest and accessible from the rear garden, the property owns part of a neighbouring outbuilding which is currently utilised as a small gym with mezzanine storage space above. This outbuilding could possibly be adapted for use as a home office if required.

Tenure is Freehold, with residents paying a service charge of £60 per calendar month towards the upkeep of common parts including the driveway. Council tax is payable to Shropshire Council, rated as Band E.

Viewing is essential to fully appreciate the beauty of the location and the calibre of this most desirable property.

Kinlet is a small village and rural parish with historic royal connections dating back to Anglo-Saxon times, lying 6 miles north west of Bewdley at the northern fringe of the Wyre Forest in South Shropshire.

The village has a primary school, village hall, Norman church and country pub (all within half a mile of the property), whilst a wider range of amenities can be found at either Bewdley (5.5 miles) or Bridgnorth (9 miles).

Coincidentally, the agents are simultaneously selling a neighbouring two bedroom single storey barn conversion at Winnal Court, known as 'Stable Courtyard', thereby providing a rather unique window of opportunity for two connected households to live alongside each other, for example a family wishing to live in close proximity to elderly parents or similar.
